This proven and internationally recognized text teaches the methods of engineering design as a condition of successful product development. It breaks down the design process into phases and then into distinct steps, each with its own working methods. The book provides more examples of product development; it also tightens the scientific bases of its design ideas with new solution fields in composite components, building methods, mechatronics and adaptronics. The economics of design and development are covered and electronic design process technology integrated into its methods. The book is sharply written and well-illustrated.

From the Back Cover:

Engineering design must be carefully planned and systematically executed. In particular, engineering design methods must integrate the many different aspects of designing and the priorities of the end-user.

Engineering Design (3rd edition) describes a systematic approach to engineering design. The authors argue that such an approach, applied flexibly and adapted to a particular task, is essential for successful product development. The design process is first broken down into phases and then into distinct steps, each with its own working methods. The third edition of this internationally-recognised text is enhanced with new perspectives and the latest thinking. These include extended treatment of product planning; new sections on organisation structures, simultaneous engineering, leadership and team behaviour; and updated chapters on quality methods and estimating costs. New examples have been added and existing ones extended, with additions on design to minimise wear, design for recycling, mechanical connections, mechatronics, and adaptronics.

Engineering Design (3rd edition) is translated and edited from the sixth German edition by Ken Wallace, Professor of Engineering Design at the University of Cambridge, and Luciënne Blessing, Professor of Engineering Design and Methodology at the Technical University of Berlin.

Topics covered include:

  • fundamentals;
  • product planning and product development;
  • task clarification and conceptual design;
  • embodiment design rules, principles and guidelines;
  • mechanical connections, mechatronics and adaptronics;
  • size ranges and modular products;
  • quality methods; and
  • cost estimation methods.

The book provides a comprehensive guide to successful product development for practising designers, students, and design educators. Fundamentals are emphasised throughout and short-term trends avoided; so the approach described provides a sound basis for design courses that help students move quickly and effectively into design practice.

Engineering Design is widely acknowledged to be the most complete available treatise on systematic design methods. In it, each step of the engineering design process and associated best practices are documented. The book has particularly strong sections on design from the functional perspective and on the phase of the process between conceptual and detail design in which most key design decisions are made. The 3rd edition includes new material on project planning and scheduling. Anyone committed to understanding the design process should be familiar with the contents of this book.

Warren Seering, Weber-Shaughness Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology



 

 

 

 

About the Author:

Dr.Ing. Gerhard Pahl graduated from the Technical College of Darmstadt in 1954 and spent the next 10 years involved with the initial start-up, construction and development of turbomachines with Brown, Boveri and Cie. During the years between 1965 and 1990, Dr.Ing. Pahl was professor for Mechanical Components and Engineering Design at the Technical College of Darmstadt. He was vice-president of the German Research Foundation from 1978 to 1984 and is a member of the Berlin Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences.

Dr.Ing. Joerg Feldhusen graduated from the Technical University of Berlin in 1989. Between 1989 and 1994 he was the department head of Electronic Design at AEG Westinghouse Transportation Systems, Berlin. He then went on to become head of design and development of the Duewag railway vehicle manufacturing company, Duesseldorf, followed by technical manager of Siemens Light Rail, Düsseldorf and Erlangen. In 1999 he was made professor for Engineering Design and in 2000 director of the Institute for General Mechanical Engineering Design Technology of the Technical College of Rhineland-Westphalia in Aachen.

Dr.Ing. Karl Grote graduated from DO Berlin in 1984 and then studied for his Postdoc in the USA. In 1990 he became professor at the California State University, Long Beach, USA, before moving to the OvG Univ. Magdeburg in 1995. From October 2002 to September 2004 he was a visiting professor at the Engineering Design Research Laboratory of Professor Erik Antonsson, CalTech, Pasadena, USA.
